Fish oil and diet
It was in the early 1970s that Danish doctors first made the connection between the cardiovascular health of Eskimos and the high intake of fish oil in their diets. Today, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are considered an integral part of a healthy diet. In fact, omega-3s are important for normal human health.* They affect many physiological processes, including cognitive function, visual acuity, and normal immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory responses, along with supporting normal glucose and lipid metabolism.*
The omega-3 fatty acids thought responsible for the health benefits of fish oil come from cold-water ocean fish, such as sardines, herring, mackerel, albacore tuna and salmon. While it is important to keep fish on the menu, many find it difficult to eat enough per week to satisfy the minimum health requirements. In fact, many prefer fish oil supplements because they minimize the risks of consuming pesticides and other toxins often found in fish. Fish oil supplements provide an easy way to get the quality omega-3 your body needs.
